As we all sit and enjoy the coronation of the NBA’s next generational star, one cannot help but wonder what sports icon needs to learn from the King James experience. LeBron James needed to win a championship more than he wanted to win a championship, the same can be said about Philadelphia Eagles‘ quarterback, Michael Vick.
Much like James, Vick had the King Midas touch and relished being the gold standard by which players were judged. Also, much like James, Vick’s acclaim did not match his achievement. Both players entered their prospective leagues with unbridled fanfare and hype.
James handled the hype with maturity well beyond his years. Conversely, Vick stumbled at every pass and would eventually find himself behind the Great Steel Gate.
